QUESTION

With regards to the COFI Bill, do you believe lumping the health and finance sector in the same basket will sustain the financial sector?

ANSWER

Yes, it forms part of the FSCA’s mandate to protect and maintain the sustainability of the financial sector, and to legislate fairness and make it the law
No, the products are different therefore the health sector should not have to be subjected to similar conduct requirements
This will cause problems. More consultations should be conducted before the final version of the COFI Bill is sent to Parliament for promulgation
